MSC Euribia, MSC's second LNG-powered ship, has completed a successful 4-day trial in the Atlantic Ocean (Bay of Biscay) for deepwater intensive systems tests.

The ship will now receive her finishing touches at Chantiers de l'Atlantique (STX France shipyard in Saint Nazaire) before being officially delivered to MSC on May 31st.

With max passenger capacity 6327 (2421 staterooms), Euribia (MSC's 22nd liner) will be officially named on June 8 in Copenhagen Denmark, and will sail an inaugural season in Northern Europe from homeport Kiel Germany.

The 181541 GT-ton vessel has 18 decks and features advanced marine technology and an LNG fuel system to minimize the environmental impact. Euribia also has a customized fresco painted on its exterior to promote MSC Cruises' commitment to protecting and preserving the marine environment. The artwork aims to stimulate discussion on the importance of protecting the delicate and complex ecosystem of the oceans.

Euribia has shore power plug-in connectivity, advanced wastewater treatment systems, waste recycling, and an underwater radiated noise management system to limit disturbance to marine life.
